Dogs bark when a thief or fraudulent activity is going on. Also when they see an unknown person especially trying to enter someone’s home or a danger is near.

Similarly, When your dog is unhappy he may bark unnecessarily to seek attention. For the solution, you can learn the dog’s calming commands and the addressing towards the dog to make him feel prioritized in the case of boredom. 


This is a common behavior of all dogs with specific breeds when they have a nature of hunting. My hounds and terriers used to do this activity when they were excited to find or hunt someone. This is something natural in their behavior. But if the dogs of other breeds are doing this then the reason may be that they are looking for something under the ground which can be anything like a displaced bone or a toy item. So, do not worry about anything, just be calm and patient. 


Usually, pet puppies and dogs feel sad when their owner is going to leave them. As the animals get friendly with their owners, this kind of scenario is the same for them as humans do get separated from each other. Your pet dog may even stop showing interest in his daily activities or may even stop eating his diet properly. Also, the anxiety includes aggressiveness in his behavior due to changes in environment or not satisfying his requirements such as proper food or love and care from the owner’s side.

The urinary excretion may get imbalanced due to anxiety or other issues. Many dogs pee inside the home which makes the environment troublesome. This is not disgusting behavior of the dogs as they make your home dirty, uncleaned and unpleasant. You will need to keep a check on the schedule of the dog’s urine during his period of behavior. Priority, seek a veterinary doctor who will assist you with this problem. The doctor will take a look at the dog’s health and will assist you in further process. But in the case of baby puppies, you can not do anything as they are unaware of this behavior. So, be calm and wait for 3-4 months to get your dog trained for it.

From this technique, your pet will get trained after a certain period.  

Jumping Up

Your dog will jump and will stand on his two rare feet and will use his front feet to reach you. All you can do is go outside for a walk or have some playing activity inside your home.
